Nudists Participate in TreeSpirit Project Photoshoot

By Rolf Holbach


November 2019


For the first two years Jack Gescheidt, the TreeSpirit Project photographer, used the trees on our property at Arroyo Del Sol to stage some amazing photos with any nudists who wanted to participate in the photos. Jack’s photos celebrate human interdependence with trees and nature in general. One of 2017’s photos ended up as the cover of the Naturist Society’s 2018 summer issue of “N” magazine.


Last year we had exhausted all the possible tree scenarios on our property and decided to hike up the nearby Gabrielino Trail to some locations Jack scouted out while he was here.


This year the day after our Friendsgiving Party we had about 25 fellow naturists from all over Southern California meet at our house for some quick directions on what to expect, and then we set off up the trail around 2:30. About a mile from our door, Jack led us down to a stream bed off the main trail and posed us to mimic the rocks in the stream (see the pic above). After that he took two couples to another location for some private photos (see page 1). Most of the rest of us headed back home for some swim time, snacks and comparing notes about another wonderful nude experience in nature!
